My family and I like to play games together.We like to spend time together. My little sister was born when I was 7 years old . My family likes to go on long drives, it’s really fun .We have been going around the United States of America we have been to El Paso,TX,   Pennsylvania and now I am in Pensacola,FL.

I came to America for my dad’s job .We have been moving a lot ,we came to United states on April 29 2015. Because of my dad’s work we have to move a lot .Sometimes it can be bad and sometimes it can be good .I never thought that I would be in America because we were just in India. When my parents told me we were moving to America I was sad and excited .

My “I Am From poem”:

I am from spices

From chilli powder and cotton

I am from where there are a lot of festivals

Firecrackers, lights, happiness

I am from where people eat a lot of mango

Sweet and good

I am from colors and playing around

From mom and dad

I am from cooking and playing around

From “don’t be scared and don’t give up”

I am from where we make up our own games and kids playing

I am from India

Chili ice cream

From the place where my dad started traveling from

The place where my mom came from Nepal

Under the shelf in my grandma’s house

If you use them you won’t forget them
